SHELBY CO, Tenn. ( — Thursday the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office released the results of the psychological retesting of 209 deputies.

Reevaluation was required after the county learned the license of the last doctor to conduct those evaluations was expired.

Today Sheriff Floyd Bonner announced all who were retested passed, and no jobs were lost.

Testing of 188 correctional deputies will begin in the next two weeks. In response to the fiasco, a new doctor has been hired to conduct the exams, and the sheriff’s office has established its own human resources department.
